Watch Dogs Launches WeareData Experiential Website

Watch Dogs
Ubisoft

Data and hyper-connectivity are huge facets of Watch Dogs, Ubisoft’s upcoming game starring a hacker named Aiden Pearce. Fittingly, it’s just launched a website called WeareData, which effectively looks at all of the publicly-available data for given locations. Creepy.

The new site is fascinating, a little voyeuristic, but wholly engrossing. WeareData states it is “the first website to gather publicly available data about Paris, London and Berlin, in one location. Each of the three towns is recreated on a 3D map, allowing the user to discover the data that organizes and runs modern cities today, in real time. It also displays information about the inhabitants of these cities, via their social media activity.”

Users can zoom in on the 3D models of the cities and move around to see information like what traffic lights are doing, where trains are running and who’s tweeting what from where. You can think of yourself as an all-seeing oracle while you check out all of the data from the cities.

Check out WeareData here and let us know what you think of the little experiential site. Watch Dogs will be released later this year for PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 on November 19. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be released around each console’s launch window.
